4:13 pm
confetti donations from the gun lobby would help them secure the balance of power in a strenuous parliament in an upcoming federal election there we would we would get out now if we were to see you know. you know what i reckon that. if you want wendy you would give us a lot of house and i would have felt that. while seeking millions from the gun lobby one nation said it was prepared to soften stricter gun control legislation in australia that the n.r.a. has frequently criticized we want to know whether or not. you'll be there during a visit to the us dixon and ashby attended a series of meetings in which they were often advised by gun lobby groups on how to prepare the is trillion public for an easing of the strict gun laws you have

4:15 pm
now from sydney. the revelations are still dominating the news here in australia this is the front page of one paper scorched and loaded now that refers to the two one nation officials who were caught on camera trying to get money out of the us gun lobby now saying that when they were filmed they were drunk they drank too much whisky too much scotch by the filmmaker from al-jazeera who made this program says that's just not true at all he filmed hours of footage of them in business meetings as well as in bars and they were consistently saying that they wanted to get money out of the us gun lobby consistently saying that they thought they could change the political system here if they got hold of that money the other excuse that the one nation officials have is that this was entrapment by al jazeera a foreign owned in their eyes a muslim broadcaster and for a right wing political party that sort of smear perhaps is no surprise not too surprising that one nation wants to highlight pick atari informs associate out zero
4:16 pm
with the. muslim world because it runs on a you know islamophobia platform and that fits within its narrative it's important to say too that the filmmaker behind this documentary denies completely that he was in any way compromised editorially because of al-jazeera as financial backer there was no influence whatsoever from qatar no imports no suggestion no censorship nothing whatsoever this was entirely conducted by me and my team in washington and in australia politically all this matters here because while one nation is an extreme party on the far right of politics they do have about five in some places nearly ten percent support and the prime minister who runs a center right party doesn't want to completely alienated their supporters so he's got to tread a very fine line while on the one hand saying that there are extremists who do stupid things like this in this documentary he doesn't want to say that those who support them are in the same boat. you can watch the whole program from al-jazeera
